Coloring for Christmas

Hi all. I'm popping in to share a card I just finished. I'm really happy with how it turned out. (It's amazing what you'll learn when watching coloring tutorials!)


 Here's the inside:

I wanted the image to be the focal point so I found an older Sunday Stamps sketch to work with. After I colored her, she needed a bit of sparkle, so I added Diamond Stickles to the holly veins and the fur trim. With my crack photography skillz, it looks like I added gold to the holly and silver to the fur trim, but trust me, it's all one color! LOL! Here's a slightly better shot:


She is so sparkly in real life! The Stamps by Aurora Wings FB page is having a holiday Sprites challenge, so I'm headed over there now to enter this card. On the last day. Because that's how I roll. *cough*

I've colored her using Spectrum Noir markers:
Skin: FS2, FS4, TN2, CR3
Leaves: LG3, LG4, JG5
Coat & berries: DR2, DR6, DR7
Fur trim/muff: IG2, IG3
Boots: BG2, BG6, BG9
Ground: IG4, IG6
Outline: TB1

Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great day!
